Ethiopia Harrar Oromia - Abebe

Traditional Natural, Hand Sorted, Shade Grown

Smoky Clove Aroma, Raspberry, Good Acidity and Body

This is a Natural Process coffee by a group of small farm holders in Harrar, located in the Eastern Highlands of Ethiopia.
Ethiopia Harrar Abebe (meaning “Flourishing Flower”) is processed traditionally, sorted by hand (to separate imperfect coffee cherries), then dried on raised beds for 21 days.

Natural Processing allows the juices and enzymes of the coffee cherry to be absorbed into the bean, where it imparts a wild and fruity quality.
A Natural Processed coffee will visibly show a subtle peppering of color on the bean.
This unmistakable variation to the coffee's hue is a result of the natural imperfection of the dry process technique, and the peppering can become even more noticeable once the coffee has been roasted.

General Flavor Observations
Ethiopia Harrar Oromia - Abebe

This is a medium-bodied coffee that is well-balanced and offers a very nice acidity.
The over-all profile has a smoky, clove-like aroma, which is likewise reflected in the cup as a wonderful smoky/peaty/spicy attribute.
The cup itself is winey and fruit-forward, with a pleasant wild quality and raspberry jam fruit notes.

As with many Ethiopian Harrar coffees, you will find hints of blueberry, although subtle with this offering.
The finish will present a good acidity (brightness) and a lingering, dark chocolate finish.

Simply put, a smooth, sweet, fruit forward, Ethiopian offering!

Roast Level Profile Notes
Ethiopia Harrar Oromia - Abebe

As per my usual preference, I have chosen a Full City for our Default Roast Level for the best overall balance of attributes.
However, I can wholeheartedly recommend other Roast Levels as they each add something unique to the profile.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast level will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

For a lighter body, brighter acidity, prominent raspberry, and a snappy finish that is nicely offset by a mild chocolaty, tea-like base, this is the perfect choice.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

Great choice for a smooth mouth-feel and a medium-bodied cup. The aromatics are wonderful, with notes of clove and spice.
Hints of black tea, and sweetness, all surrounded by fruit-forward tones of raspberry.
You may detect hints of blueberry as well in the bright and lingering finish. An outstanding and well-balanced cup.

Full City (+) Roast

This is a great roast level if you want a cup that has a more syrupy mouth-feel, deeper fruit tones and tempered acidity.
The fruit tones tend toward blueberry, yet hints of raspberry remain. This will be an excellent choice if you prefer darker roasts.

Vienna Roast

If you are looking for a great coffee to accompany sweet desserts, this might just be your roast level!
The body will be perceived as full and accompanied by a well-tempered acidity, prominent dark chocolate, sweet stone fruit, and a silky mouth-feel.

French Roast

Not recommended. Simply too dark of a roast for this coffee.

Additional Information
Ethiopia Harrar Oromia - Abebe

The Harrar Region is located in the Eastern Highlands portion of Ethiopia's Oromia Zone and is, geographically, the eastern-most growing region of Ethiopia. The Oromia Zone is home to several of Ethiopia's best known coffee growing regions, including Guji, Limu, and Harrar.

Coffee production in Harrar has decreased over the past few years, but there are still a few suppliers here who continue to produce high quality Harrar coffee.
In Harrar especially, the traditional natural or dry process method has long been a trusted cornerstone of coffee production.

Dry/Natural Processing refers to the practice in which the whole, un-pulped, coffee cherry is left to dry in the sun; this results in the renowned wild, fruit-forward and bodied style of many Ethiopian coffees.
